In addition to comfortable bedrooms, The Craigard offers a spacious restaurant. It’s popular with local residents (always a good sign) and the menu features fresh local cuisine, including fresh local seafood. Try hand-dived scallops or creel caught lobster, which are reckoned to be much better tasting than trawled shellfish. Catch of the day gives you the opportunity to enjoy freshly landed fish - perhaps to sample succulent local monkfish, herring or mackerel.

There is a choice of two well stocked bars and the terrace, with its panoramic views, is a very pleasant place to soak up the warmth on a good summer’s day, or to see a spectacular sunset.

Barra people have a reputation for their hospitality and enjoyment of life - don’t be surprised when local folk pass the time of day with you and wish you a pleasant stay on the island. The lifestyle here is very relaxed and everyone has time to enjoy each other’s company.

These are qualities that you’ll find the owners of the Craigard Hotel also endeavour to uphold.
